wheat puttu (gova pootu)

in konkani "govu"means 'wheat'.with wheat flour we can make not only roties ,we can make puttu also.spicy chickpea curry in a very good combination for this puttu.

wheat flour -2cups
rava (semolina) -1cup
grated coconut -1 nos
ghee -1tbsp
salt -to taste
water what is required for making the dough

This is truly one of the simplest breakfast dishes you can make but the consistency of the flour is very important to get soft puttu.

Mix the wheat flour, rava , ghee and salt till its totally blended. Then add water little at a time till the flour is wet. Make sure there are no lumps.

making sure to layer the bottom with coconut that's about an inch high. After transferring half the flour, you can add one more layer, top it off with the rest of the flour and then finish off with another layer of coconut.
Steam this for 10 minutes. Once done, transfer to a dish and serve hot with spicy chickpea curry.

if you want you can add grated coconut with the dough to make the puttu more taster.
